NICK CAVE lyrics : "Stagger Lee"

It was back in '32 when times were hard
He had a Colt .45 and a deck of cards
Stagger Lee

He wore rat-drawn shoes and an old stetson hat
Had a '28 Ford, had payments on that
Stagger Lee

His woman threw him out in the ice and snow
And told him, "Never ever come back no more"
Stagger Lee

So he walked through the rain and he walked through the mud
Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood
Stagger Lee

He said "Mr Mother$#&@er, you know who I am"
The barkeeper said, "No, and I don't give a good !@#$"
To Stagger Lee

He said, "Well bartender, it's plain to see
I'm that bad mother$#&@er called Stagger Lee"
Mr. Stagger Lee

Barkeep said, "Yeah, I've heard your name down the way
And I kick mother$#&@ing $$#es like you every day"
Mr Stagger Lee

Well those were the last words that the barkeep said
'Cause Stag put four holes in his mother$#&@ing head
Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown

Was known to make more money than any (*##$ in town
She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt
Over to Stagger Lee, she starts to flirt

With Stagger Lee
She saw the barkeep, said, "O God, he can't be dead!"
Stag said, "Well, just count the holes in the mother$#&@er's

She said, "You ain't look like you scored in quite a time.
Why not come to my pad? It won't cost you a dime"

Mr. Stagger Lee
"But there's something I have to say before you begin
You'll have to be gone before my man Billy Dilly comes in,

Mr. Stagger Lee"
"I'll stay here till Billy comes in, till time comes to pass
And furthermore I'll $#&@ Billy in his mother$#&@ing $$#"

Said Stagger Lee
"I'm a bad mother$#&@er, don't you know
And I'll crawl over fifty good !@#( just to get one fat boy's

Said Stagger Lee
Just then Billy Dilly rolls in and he says, "You must be

That bad mother$#&@er called Stagger Lee"
Stagger Lee
"Yeah, I'm Stagger Lee and you better get down on your knees

And suck my dick, because If you don't you're gonna be dead"
Said Stagger Lee
Billy dropped down and slobbered on his head

And Stag filled him full of lead
Oh yeah.
